With two teenage sons, there are times when I despair as our kids seem to be eating us out of house and home! However, after searching high and low I have come across some great hacks on how to save money on groceries. It is the one area of our spending that I can often save the most with a few tricks and below I’ve shared these tips and tricks with you so you can also save money on groceries.
Save Money on Groceries by Planning Ahead
Meal planning can help in so many ways but the reason I use it is that it sames me money and it saves me time too. It also helps with reducing the amount of food waste to the point where we don’t have any food waste! It also means people don’t get bored with the dinners each week as there is such a variety.
Save Money on Groceries by getting free items or reduced
Certain reward apps is great as they allow you to get free items or reduced items and you can do it from the comfort of an app on your phone. You receive cash-back after purchasing the select food item by submitting a picture of your receipt.
This is how it works though:
- Download the app(s) and create your account(s).
- Select your cash back offers.
- Go purchase your selected items.
- Take a photo of your receipt and upload it.
- Receive cash back.
Save Money on Groceries with these Apps
First download the app from the link here. The cashback offers can be valid for in-store and online but there are terms and conditions for each so check carefully. There is also an expiry date on the purchase – again check this carefully.
Have a browse of the offers, go and buy the product, take a photo of the receipt, upload and the cashback will be credited to your account. There is a £5.00 cash out minimum payment. This can be transferred to your Paypal or your bank account.
Clicksnap is part of the Quidco group so you first need to sign up to Quidco here. Once you sign up to Quidco, download the ClickSnap app. Enter the app you will see a selection of what is on offer. You purchase the product, take a photo of your receipt, upload it and cashback is credited to your account. You can withdraw your cash once you reach £1 and this can be paid either via your Paypal account or your bank account.
Again download the app from here and set up your account. Buy the product you are looking to get cashback on, take a photo of your receipt, upload it and get the cashback credited to your account.
Shopmium is my favourite at the moment. Download the app and if you wish to sign up with my referral code KMHECCCP you’ll also get cashback for a FREE gift! The site is straightforward, the products you can claim cashback for are listed, purchase the product, scan the barcode, take a photo of your receipt and upload, credit is normally within the hour and is automatically transferred to your bank or Paypal account each claim you make.
